Update from the Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush

This morning I received an email from Lorraine Ustaris, one of our participating teachers at the Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush. Her email was full of links to her 9th grade students’ blog sites that they are currently developing for their Learning Through Photography at Moore project this year.

Lorraine’s students have completed Phase I of a 3-Phase series of writing and photography lessons focusing on Ekphrastic poetry — poetry that comments upon or is inspired by a work of art, such as a poem about a sculpture or a painting. Their work is both inspiring and beautiful so I wanted to share it with everyone as soon as I received Lorraine’s email!

Below are links to a few of the sites created by her students (just a sneak peek…we don’t want to give everything away before this summer’s city-wide exhibitions!) At the culmination of this academic year permanent links to all of her students’ blog sites will be available through our Learning Through Photography at Moore blog. Enjoy!
